Today on Your Call: How is fracking affecting our food and water supply?
On today's Your Call, we’ll talk about hydraulic fracturing ("fracking") and how it may be negatively impacting the health of our food supply, water systems, and ultimately our bodies. Journalist, Elizabeth Royte, wrote in an article for The Nation: "there’s growing evidence that these two impulses, toward energy and food independence, may be at odds with each other." Join us at 10 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Do you know if your food or water comes from near a fracking site? It’s Your Call with Holly Kernan, and You.
